Back in 2001, there was a lengthy thread on the PG Hackers list about PG and journaling file systems (, but there was no decisive conclusion regarding what FS to use. At the time the fly in the XFS ointment was that deletes were slow, but this was improved with XFS 1.1.

I think a journaling a FS is needed for PG data since large DBs could take hours to recover on a non-journaling FS, but what about WAL files?
